Well, on the whole, we've adopted an approach of "hack core and
merge", so to some extent you have to use your imagination to think
about what it would look like if it were all done using hooks.  But
we've also actually added hooks to Advanced Server in some places
where PostgreSQL doesn't have them, and it's not hard to imagine that
somebody else might find those useful, at least.  Whether they'd be
useful enough that the PostgreSQL community would accept them if
EnterpriseDB were to approve open-sourcing them is another
